Some small pimples, coalescing into blisters the size of a 
split pea, filled with yellow watery fluid, with intense 
itching; < at night after 12 p.m.; the only relief he 
can get is to rub it with something rough until the 
blisters are open. 

Numerous vesicles appear on different parts of body, vary- 
ing from two or three lines to one-fourth inch in diame- 
ter; vesicles dry and disappear by desquamation. 

A burning eruption of small blisters, filled with water, 
with redness of skin of whole body, except on scalp, 
palms of hands and soles of feet. 

Vesicles, most of which contain a milky, but some of which 
also contain a clear liquid, become confluent ; this con- 
dition lasts three days, after which the skin desqua- 
mates. 

Clusters of vesicles, filled at first with a watery substance, 
near both corners of mouth on margin of lower lip, with 
a salty biting sensation, and soreness to touch. 

Large blisters containing yellowish liquid, with swelling 
of arm ; blisters were ruptured carelessly and the liquid 
flowed over whole arm, after which a very large number 
of vesicles appeared, so that after eight days whole 
forearm seemed to be one mass of blisters; anointing 
with olive oil seemed to have no effect upon the com- 
plaint ; soon the upper arm and then r. arm and other 
parts of body became affected ; whole trouble lasted four 
weeks. 

An eruption of an erysipelatous nature upon face ; the 
inflammation had extended over forehead and into 
scalp, both eyes were closed, both ears, cheeks and lips 
were very much tumefied and pitted on pressure, and 
the patient's features were so much disfigured that he 
was not at all recognizable. 

Erysipelatoid eruption affecting hands and arms, feet and 
legs, face and sometimes the whole person ; it varied in 
extent and in severity from a small patch, with trivial 
itching, to an extended surface with enormous swelling 
and excruciating suffering; pruritus, tingling, smarting, 
stinging burning were the sensations described ; on a red 
and swollen base of inflamed skin, vesicles and blebs, 
from the size of a pin's head to a pea, were crowded 
together, and when these broke and dried, eczematous 
crusts remained ; sufficient irritation carried the in- 
flammation on to ulceration.

I Raw sensation in larynx, when coughing. 

I I Acute catarrhal affections of larynx, trachea and bron- 
chi; dry, frequent, continuous cough, in long paroxysms, 
or, under certain circumstances, almost uninterrupted, 
and out of proportion to degree of organic affection of 
mucous membrane ; induced, or greatly < by any ir- 
regularity of respiration, such as a little deeper or more 
rapid inspiration than usual, by inspiration of air a 
little colder than that previously inhaled, by irregularity 
of respiration and irregular motions of larynx and 
trachea, such as are involved in the act of speech, and 
by external pressure upon trachea in region of supra- 
sternal fossa; great irritability of mucous membrane of 
larynx and trachea ; rawness and soreness in trachea, 
extending a short distance below suprasternal fossa 
and laterally into bronchi, chiefly 1. ; tickling in supra- 
sternal fossa and behind sternum provokes cough ; this 
tickling is very annoying and persistent and is often, 
but momentarily, and sometimes only partially, > by 
coughing ; cough occurs chiefly, or is much < in even- 
ing after retiring, and at that time the membrane of 
trachea is particularly sensitive to cold air and to any 
irregularity in the flow of air over its surface, so that 
patient often covers head with bedclothes to avoid the 
cold air and refuses to speak or even listen to conversa- 
tion, lest his attention should be withdrawn from the 
supervision of his respiratory acts, which he performs 
with the most careful uniformity and deliberation. 

I i Has not been able to speak above a whisper for nearly 
three months ; soreness in throat < during empty 
deglutition, but is not < by swallowing food ; posterior 
surface of pharynx irritated and in places excoriated,

Breathing causes soreness behind sternum. 

1 1 Rattling in windpipe; frequent feeling as if she could 
not get another breath (compare Apis), coughing spells 
several times a day, lasting one and a half hours at a 
time and originating in a sense of great accumulation 
of tough mucus in chest, with increased dyspnoea and 
desire to cough it up, causing a general hot sweat half 
an hour before spell (increasing during it) ; cough very 
hard, with feeling of suffocation, reaching to epigastrium, 
as if tough phlegm must work up ; severe soreness be- 
hind whole sternum, spreading to each side ; constant 
but < during cough ; much tough mucus is brought 
up during spell ; during its continuance feels like kill-

air warmer. 

I Hawking with burning soreness in larynx; later in 1. 
bronchus, renewed by strong exhalation and scraping. 

Dry spasmodic cough, simulating early stage of whooping 
cough, at first dry, coming on in paroxysms preceded by 
tickling in throat pit, attended by congestion and 
slight pain in head and wrenching pains in r. side of 
chest ; the most violent paroxysm began a few moments 
after lying down at night, usually at about 11 o'clock ; 
this paroxysm lasted ten or fifteen minutes, after which 
he slept all night ; a less severe paroxysm occurred in 
bed, in morning after waking, and at various times 
through day ; after two weeks, expectoration of ad-

hesive mucus in small quantities, detached with diffi- 
culty. 

■Hacking cough. 

Pressure on throat causes cough. 

Cough as soon as he turns on 1. side. 

■ The most violent cough occurs a few moments after ly- 

ing down and at night; in some cases complete aphonia. 

I I Severe cough, provoked by pressure on trachea, deep 
inspirations, inhalation of cold air and talking ; cough 
severe, explosive and continuous, hurts the head, ac- 
companied by involuntary micturition ; < latter part 
of night. 

I 'Dry, tickling, spasmodic, cough, with tenderness in 
larynx and trachea, rendering cough quite painful. 

1 iTeasing, persistent cough, < in cool air, or by anything 
which increases the volume or rapidity of inspired air. 

■ Dry, hacking, incessant, very fatiguing cough, excited 

by tickling in suprasternal fossa, extending downward 
to middle of sternum, with a sensation as if a feather 
were swaying to and fro in bronchi with respiration, 
causing a tickling which provokes cough. 

I I Cough begins with tickling behind top of sternum and 
sometimes in paroxysms of five to ten minutes dura- 
tion ; trachea sore to outward pressure, feels excoriated 
through its whole extent, as do also the whole fauces ; 
cough excited by pressure on throat pit ; cough is vio- 
lent with scanty, difficult expectoration, shocks head 
and chest, head as if it would fly into pieces and he 
feels as if he might raise blood any minute ; greatly ex- 
hausted after the paroxysms of coughing ; head aches 
during cough. 

I I Dry cough ; tickling in throat pit ; continued desire to 
cough on breathing cold air, < after retiring to bed ; 
obliged to cover mouth with bedclothes and use every 
effort to prevent coughing ; occasional pains through 
both lungs extending up into trachea ; feels weak and 
exhausted in morning ; very frequently a rawness in 
throat in morning.

cold air during Winter ; cough < lying down, and es- 
pecially at 11 o'clock at night ; excited by tickling be- 
hind sternum and attended by a sprainlike aching near 
sternum and with accumulation of mucus in fauces near 
posterior nares.

tween 1 and 2 a.m. with cough in any position ; it made 
the chest feel bruised and seemed as if it did not reach 
low enough down to raise the phlegm, and when it did 
loosen it, it caused soreness of chest ; after catching 
cold from exposure to cold early morning air. 

I I Severe cold for several days ; pulse quick, not hard, 

110, skin moderately hot and dry, face somewhat 
flushed ; respiration embarrassed not so much by any 
constriction of chest as by violent and long-continued 
cough, which follows any attempt to make a full in- 
spiration ; physical examination of chest reveals noth- 
ing abnormal ; roughness and soreness in lower part of 
trachea and behind upper third of sternum much 
more perceptible when she coughs ; cough dry, slightly 
hoarse, very violent and fatiguing ; it is provoked by a 
tickling in suprasternal fossa, is induced by pressure 
upon trachea in that region and especially by talking 
and by deep inspiration or by inspiration of cool air ; 
this irritability of trachea increases very markedly after 
7 P.M., so that she suffers exceedingly from the constant 
tickling and violent cough ; she can prevent it only by 
respiring with great caution and deliberation, by avoid- 
ing all distractions of speech and conversation, and 
finally she draws bedclothes over head in order to avoid 
inhaling cool air of chamber. 

I I Severe dry cough at times for several years ; cough <

frequent night sweats ; tickling in throat and at top of 
sternum ; after coughing some time, rawness in throat 
of a very disagreeable character, extending from 
pharynx down beneath upper portion of sternum, 
accompanied by a burning sensation through upper 
lobes of both lungs (clavicular region), with loss of ap- 
petite and considerable prostration, on examination no 
indication of presence of tubercles. 

J I Contracted cold in head, throat and lungs ; cough hard, 
dry and explosive, provoked by tickling in throat, talk- 
ing, deep inspiration, inhaling cold air, < in lying; 
hurts the head and is accompanied by involuntary 
micturition.

teeth is very slightly affected bj'' it, but the dentine, 
when it is exposed by caries, is rapidly destroyed. 

The increased amount of the salts of lime in the urine 
soon after Salicylic acid has been taken shows that the 
acid deprives living as well as dead bone of its lime 
salts.

295 SEPIA. 



SEPIA 

Cuttle Fish. Mollusca. 



Introduced by Hahnemann. 

The cuttle fish is an inhabitant of the European seas, particularly the Mediter- 
ranean. Its ink bag contains a blackish-brown excretory liquor with which it 
darkens the water when it wishes to escape its enemies or catch its prey. 

The triturations and tincture are made from the pure, dry, genuine Sepia, not 
from the artificial India ink used in drawing.
